Cheese carries a strength rating and wine has a sweetness/dryness indicator, so do you not think that biscuits should have a dunkability factor? So you can gauge how long you can dunk it in your tea without it breaking off in your hand and ****ing up your brew. Obviously custard creams would have a higher rating to say... Rich Tea.

Good idea...but of course, it does depend on how hot your chosen brew is. In that way, it is much like an ice-lollies 'drip factor' which is related to how hot the weather is! The experienced dunker can take into account type/temp. of brew and kind of biccie, but of course, this is a skill learned with age.'ve made me want a custard I'm off to the shop!!

Jills, you too have been pondering this subject I see. Maybe we should get together and approach McVities. I see pounds signs and a life of breakage-free dunking!

Personally I'm a chocolate digestive man - plain not milk - but you can only dunk them quickly otherwise you lose the chocolate. I'll like to break them in half first. Royal Teas are good too (Rich teas with a chocolate top) but you don't see many about any more.
